It’s like Theo Parrish says to paraphrase ppl think they invented something new when someone had already done it before they just didn’t do any digging and the community around them is also ignorant. He was talking about dance music but it’s a basic truism of a lot of things

Reading Utopia of Rules by Graeber and it talks about how sometimes when conservatives say they want deregulation what they really want is regulation that benefits them usually at the expense of the poor/marginalized. I think something similar happns when cons talk about cancel culture. What they really mean is they want to be allowed to say their bigoted ideas with no repercussions but dont want progressives to talk about their ideas. I.E. the journalist getting fired for being pro Palestine

Having so much trouble wrapping my head around Modules

Watching hours of YouTube videos instead of doing something worthwhile

Every year I regret more and more not buying some crypto early on
